The guessing game over how much "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will earn at both the domestic and international box-office continues, but one thing that hasn't really been speculated about is how much the combination of the film's merchandise and the Disney merchandise marketing machine will earn in regards to the franchise.
Today, Variety reports that Macquarie Securities analyst Tim Nollen predicts that the first year following the release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is estimated to generate $5 billion dollars in franchise merchandise revenue.
In one year it will effectively pull in one-quarter of the $20 billion in total revenue the brand has grossed since 1977. It's estimated that Disney takes 10% of merchandise sales ($500 million).
One bit of money the studio won't get is that from scalped tickets says Yahoo. Tickets for IMAX 3D opening night showings of the film are being sold for $200 or more. Tickets for a special Disney World screening which originally went for less than $100 are now going for upwards of $1,000.

Star Wars: Alden Ehrenreich Confirmed as New Han Solo
The younger Han Solo is set to be played by Alden Ehrenreich.
And on this occasion, the rumour mill got it right. The casting of the young Han Solo for the upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie has been completed, and as you well know if you read the headline to this piece, the job has gone to Alden Ehrenreich.
The young Han Solo movie is being directed by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, and the pair oversaw a casting process that in itself cast a very wide net. Amongst those who made it to the final shortlist were Jack Reynor and Taron Egerton, with Miles Teller, Dave Franco and Emory Cohen also making progress in the process.
But It's Ehrenreich who's won out. He's currently best known for his work in the likes of Beautiful Creatures, Blue Jasmine and, more recently, Hail, Caesar!
The young Han Solo Star Wars film is released on May 25th 2018.
